17 on Loader’s blog!

Welcome to my blog – intended to keep you up to date, and informed as to what is happening at 17 on Loader Guest House.

Over the past 9 years, "17" (as it is fondly referred to) has been host to literally thousands of people from all over the world. And I have really met some totally awesome guests – and have in fact had the privilege to get to know them – some of whom I have struck up friendships with – and have visited them back in in their own Countries. This has been one of the most rewarding aspects of this business.

I have also, over the years had some totally bizarre, outrageous, and hilarious experiences – guests never cease to amaze me!

Over time, I intend sharing some of these stories with you, so watch this space….

But for now, I just wanted to post a picture or two I have taken on the roof deck over the past few days. It's all about having a cup of coffee as the sun rises over the City, and casts it's pink glow over Table Mountain. I am so truly blessed to be able to start each day this way! Fondest, Dirk
